Library is a fitting tribute to city | LETTER TO THE EDIOTR

"This community can be proud of our new library and quality services available to our families."

I was so disappointed to read the letter last week disparaging our beautiful new library facility. This innovative and thoroughly modern structure is spectacular and meets the vision of many Renton residents who are excited to have such an iconic facility in our city to brag about and point out to visitors.

Stretching across the Cedar River, the lovely new facility takes its rightful place in a city known for being “ahead of the curve!” Our new downtown library will serve Renton residents well as we continue to grow STEM jobs – increasing access to educational platforms and job opportunities for our growing population.

Additionally, the new library will also be a place for neighbors to engage one another in sharing and learning, strengthening relationships between cultures and communities.

This community can be proud of our new library and quality services available to our families.

Let’s keep Renton ahead of the curve and join together to celebrate this fitting tribute to our 21st century city!

Melody F. Kroeger,
Renton
